DAYTON, OH – Honeywell TITAN firefighter breathing equipment has been improved with a louder alarm to make it easier to find downed firefighters.
This new equipment meets the new requirements from the National Fire Protection Association which includes an alarm system that sounds when a firefighter goes down or is motionless to alert others they need help. In addition to, there is an enhanced alarm that now sounds at a higher volume and different sound patterns that can be heard over background noise at the scene of a fire and from longer distances.
“Honeywell is committed to investing in new solutions, including connected technologies that advance safety so firefighters can focus their energy on attacking the fire knowing their equipment has the most advanced technology”, said Lynn Feiner, product marketing manager for Honeywell First Responder products.
Honeywell TITAN is the only company offering dual-motion sensors – one on the firefighter’s front alarm system and a second on their back-alarm system to detect even subtle motions of a firefighter. All new Honeywell TITAN shipped after Dec. 21, 2016 include the improved alarm system. Fire departments seeking to upgrade their 2007 and 2013 edition equipment to the newer standard should contact their Honeywell-authorized service center for more information.
